Guide Cardiovascular Research Infrastructure

One of the aims of the Dutch CardioVascular Alliance (DCVA) is to strengthen cardiovascular research by increasing accessibility and reusability of existing and new data. For this, the DCVA is creating a national research infrastructure that facilitates cardiovascular science, allowing scientists to fully focus on excellent research to improve patient care.
